The Boston Bruins have been on fire on all posts by the end, with a score of 7-2-1 in their last 10 games. They will face a stumbling Dallas Stars team today who have a lot of work to do if they want to get back into the playoff picture.
The Bruins outplayed the Stars in their first meeting of the season, knocking them out 3-1 in Boston on October 16.
Let’s take a look at odds via WynnBET for tonight’s rematch.
The Dallas Stars are the definition of an average hockey team, so it can be difficult to accept their games. They don’t do anything particularly well, but they also don’t have any obvious weaknesses to exploit.
Therefore, I would consider the total and lean towards the BELOW 5.5 target. The Bruins continue to be one of the better defensive teams in the NHL. They have the second lowest expected goals per 60 minutes in their last 10 matches at 2.42. Meanwhile, they have struggled offensively, coming 17th in expected goals per 60 minutes with 2.92.
Both goalkeepers conceded just one goal in their last match and I hope that momentum continues in today’s game.
Lean: BELOW 5.5 (+100)
